ALOHA MEANS GOODBYE was an entry in ABC's Movies of the Week, which were run, as I remember it, from 7:30-10:00 on Tuesdays and Wednesdays in the early 1970s.
I had just gotten the book as a paperback from the elementary school program in which you ordered books every month, and was delighted when I saw it was being made into a TV movie.
I was also delighted that it had one of my favorite stars in it: Henry Darrow. I had enjoyed him so much in the TV series HIGH CHAPPERAL.
I had read the book at least 4 times before I saw the movie -- I'm still an avid reader -- and was pleased to find that the movie was just like the book. I had been afraid that the people who adapted the book for the screen would speed up the action -- that Sally Struthers' character would find out she was there to be killed -- but the movie's pace remained true to the book.
